This is a blog started by a CEO of a large Boston hospital to share thoughts about hospitals, medicine, and health care issues.
TheGordon and Betty Moore Foundation has teamed up with Sutter to explore means and methods to transform this multi-centered health care system to the next level of quality, safety, and patient-centeredness. Sutter has already done a lot of good work in these arenas, so the hope is to build on that an explore how to do still better and enhance the likely sustainability of the results.
Pictured here are Michael Dourgarian, a local businessperson who is Chair of the Board of this region of Sutter, and Karyn DiGiorgio, RN, MSN, Program Officer for the Moore Foundation. Not shown is Dr. John Mesic, Chief Medical Officer, who introduced me and has had a lot to do with the broader Sutter effort, and Sarah Marie Miller, who helped organize the retreat.
